GOOD LUCK CANADA

By Pete Moore On January 13th, 2020 at 7:14 pm

The Queen has agreed a “period of transition” in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will spend time in Canada and the UK.

She said she is “entirely supportive” of their desire for a new role but “would have preferred” them to remain full-time working royals.

She expects final decisions to be made in the coming days, she said.

And so on.

The only transition period they need, in my book, is 90 minutes on the Piccadilly Line to Heathrow.They can forget all that “Sussex Royal” marketing BS too. It sounds like a potato. And they can forget the security, the big house, the money and the security. Leave it all behind and subject the poor Canadians to your woke nonsense. Ultimately it’s feminism to blame. What this Meghan needs is a good talking to, and apron and time in the kitchen. Pushy women are always problem women.

In five years’ time, maximum, Harry will be back with his tail between his legs after she’s divorced him. You can bet on that.

The Pelosi Scam

By Patrick Van Roy On January 13th, 2020 at 2:19 pm

The conspiracy version……. Nancy with the scary face has finally conceded she has no influence on the Impeachment now that the House has completed it’s sham charging “hearings”.  So why the delay….. simple to fix the Primary.

The Hearing in the Senate requires that all Senators must be present during it. The Hearing will cause Sanders, Warren, Booker, and Klobuchar to miss both the Iowa Caucus on Feb 3, and possibly New Hampshire on Feb 15th. Leaving only Biden and Buttigieg able to carry on their campaigns.

PRINCE HARRY, MISSING IN ACTION

By David Vance On January 12th, 2020 at 8:13 pm

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, is damaging not only the Royal Family but also his own reputation within the British military. Even as he prepares a showdown with the rest of the Royal Family later today, news has emerged that is deeply troubling.

Social Media is replete with a cringeworthy video clip of Prince Harry attending the London premiere of “The Lion King” and begging the Disney CEO Bob Iger for a voice-over role for his wife, Meghan Markle.

Now, this would be bad enough were it not for the fact that the Prince had chosen to snub a Royal Marines memorial service pencilled in for the same date so he could be at the Lion King.

“The 30th anniversary of an IRA bomb which stole the lives of 11 Royal Marine musicians will be marked with a concert on Walmer Green on Sunday. The Band of HM Royal Marines are expected to play to tens of thousands of people who will gather to pay their respects in Deal. Among the crowd will be residents whose memories have never faded of the morning which shook the seaside town to the core.”

Whilst the glitzy lights of a West End Disney movie premier may have more appeal for some than attending a solemn ceremony to mark the loss of so many young lives, the Prince is not JUST anyone. He has served honourably in uniform and carries a clear obligation towards his former brothers-in-arms. Such is his infatuation with Meghan Markle, however, that he now prefers to go begging for voice-overs for her from Chief Executives of large media organisations and that means the Royal Marines get the cold shoulder.

The details were reported in the press last year — but NOW we get the full context.

“The 34-year-old had been invited to a memorial concert for the Royal Marines held annually in Deal, Kent, but opted to be Meghan’s plus one at the celerity-flanked bash, which saw the American gush over A-list pals Beyonce and Jay Z. A spokeswoman from Buckingham Palace, who now manages the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they split from Kensington Palace, said: “The Duke’s diary is set a number of months in advance and on this occasion he was unable to attend the memorial concert.”

It may have been no big deal for Prince Harry to go to Deal but others may conclude that his fall from grace is all but complete. And that really is a big deal for the Royal Prince and his showbiz wife.

Iranian Police on My Back

By Mahons On January 12th, 2020 at 12:02 pm

The UK Ambassador to Iran was arrested by the Iranian State for “inciting rioting” against Iran in Tehran. He had been attending a memorial service for the victims of the airline shooting. Propaganda against the State can carry a death sentence in that theocracy, where it is still possible to be stoned to death.
The British Foreign Office discovered that it might just like the idea of Diplomatic Immunity after all and that it rather objected to its diplomat being detained in violation of the Vienna Convention. Respect for the laws of the host country as the prevailing theme has seen a decline in enthusiasm.
As I understand it the Ambassador has been returned to the safety of his embassy. I should say relative safety given Iran’s record on respecting embassies. Given the UK’s strong protest it can be assumed it shall not honor any Iranian request to turn him over to face the music. Will we see the headline London Recalling due to this clash? It remains to be seen. Rediscovery is an important thing, and Im glad that the UK has rediscovered the use of Diplomatic Immunity.

TEHRAN REALISES THAT EVERYONE HAS A PHONE

By Pete Moore On January 11th, 2020 at 6:11 pm

Iran’s admission it “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet has sparked demands for justice for the 176 people on board who were killed.

The calls were led by Ukraine’s president and the prime minister of Canada, which lost 57 nationals.

Social media footage has shown protests in Iran, some of them calling for Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to resign.

With the world able to watch a video of the aircraft being hit by a missile, even the mullahs had to concede that stonewalling was untenable. If they had come clean immediately they might have found the global reaction a touch more generous than they anticipated. A straight apology for a straight cock up is usually not rebuffed. Even so, they are still blaming President Trump, which sinks them to the level of Democrats and Trudeau.

Those protests are being filmed tonight and are straight onto the web too (see this thread). Good luck to the protestors. A couple of months ago the regime which Corbyn today defended murdered some 1500 protestors.

Everyone has a phone now with decent image quality. Governments cannot hide their actions as they once did.

EXTRADITION REQUEST MADE FOR SACOOLAS

By Pete Moore On January 11th, 2020 at 5:57 pm

I’m surprised this went in. I was pretty sure the government would drag its heels for years.

The United States has criticised the UK’s request to extradite an American accused of killing motorcyclist Harry Dunn, calling it “highly inappropriate”.

Mr Dunn, 19, died after being hit by a car allegedly driven by suspect Anne Sacoolas, who left the country for the US claiming diplomatic immunity.

The Home Office submitted a request on Friday to extradite her to the UK […]

A spokeswoman for the US State Department said: “It is the position of the United States government that a request to extradite an individual under these circumstances would be an abuse.

“The use of an extradition treaty to attempt to return the spouse of a former diplomat by force would establish an extraordinarily troubling precedent.”

It’s “highly inappropriate” to drive on the wrong side of the road and to flee the country after promising to stay. It’s also “highly inappropriate” to describe CIA officers as diplomats and to confer diplomatic immunity on their spouses.

The Ghost Rider Passes

By Mahons On January 10th, 2020 at 9:54 pm

Just saw that Neil Peart, the legendary drummer for the Canadian Rock Band Rush passed away at the too young age of 67 from cancer. I liked some of their songs but was never a big fan of the band (although as musicians they were technically and unarguably fantastic).

I admired Peart for his book Ghost Rider which told the tale of his riding cross country on a motorcycle through North and Central America after losing his 19 year old daughter to a car accident and his wife 10 months later to cancer. My admiration for people who try to live on in the face of grief and adversity grows stronger the older i get.

I’ll blast Spirit of the Radio, Limelight or Closer to the Heart when I get home tonight. Not in tribute to a pop star, but in tribute to the man’s spirit.
